If you wanted a fully electric SUV before the turn of the century, your options were limited. With more traditional automakers making the conversion, the market has widened dramatically. You can now drive away from a dealership with an electric SUV for less than $40,000! If you are financially knowledgeable or a marketer, you may be able to negotiate a price of less than $30,000 after taking into account local and state tax benefits.

The list of now and soon-to-be-available electric SUVs is growing, so let’s have a look at which models are already available and which will be available soon or in the far future.


Rivian is a startup that intends to compete with significant companies in the electric car market. The Irvine, California-based electric vehicle manufacturer has raised over $6 billion from investors including Amazon and Ford (which is partnering with Rivian on electric battery technology). Amazon has bought 100,000 Rivian electric delivery vans, with intentions to begin deploying the cars in 2022. Meanwhile, the Rivian R1T, which is anticipated to debut in early to mid-2021, could be the first electric pickup to hit the market. The pickup will start at $67,500 and have a top speed of 125 miles per hour (like the Hummer EV, it will also go from zero to 60 MPH in 3 seconds). The truck will also have three battery options, with a low-end range of 240 miles per charge and a high-end range of more than 400 miles.

Ford F-150

Ford’s F-150 pickup truck has been America’s best-selling car for nearly four decades (the company’s F-series trucks sold nearly 900,000 vehicles in 2019), thus the truck’s electric version is keenly anticipated. Other Ford cars, such as the classic Mustang sports car and an electric transit van, have previously been announced as having electric variants. Ford has stated that the electric F-150 will be “a very enjoyable vehicle” to drive and will include two electric motors and a spacious front trunk with hundreds of pounds of storage capacity when it hits the market in the middle of 2022. In 2019, the firm boasted about the power of the electric truck by posting a video of an electric F-150 prototype hauling a payload of double-decker train wagons containing 42 pickups weighing a total of 1.25 million pounds.

Tesla Cybertruck

Musk debuted the much-anticipated Cybertruck (with a future look inspired by two films: “Blade Runner” and “The Spy Who Loved Me”) a year ago during a press event, during which he also accidently shatter two of the electric truck prototype’s apparently impenetrable glass with a steel ball. The Cybertruck starts at $39,900 for a single-motor version of the pickup, which is slated to go into production in late-2022. The single-motor Cybertruck will have a range of 250 miles on a single charge, while the three-motor Cybertruck will have a range of 500 miles. According to Tesla, the production of dual and three-motor variants of the Cybertruck (starting at $49,000 and $69,000, respectively) would begin in late-2021.

General Motors

Not wanting to fall behind in the race to dominate the electric vehicle market, General Motors announced this month that it will spend $27 billion on all-electric and self-driving vehicles until 2025. GM showed a prototype for an electric Hummer in October, calling it “the world’s first super-truck.” The GMC Hummer EV pickup, which is expected to go into production at the end of 2021, will start at $112,595 and have a top range of 350 miles per charge, as well as the capacity to accelerate from zero to 60 MPH in under 3 seconds, according to the firm. Meanwhile, General Motors has stated that its Chevrolet brand will develop an electric pickup truck to compete with rivals such as Ford and other electric pickups.
